HANZZmade Jewelry: secret givings
made for a lovely colleague
It’s been a weird year for me in terms of feeling that holiday spirit… It’s come in waves, mostly infrequent crashes on my yule-tide shore.
Maybe it had to do with the fact that I ran into my first Christmas tree for the year before we even hit Halloween (Thanks Bloomingdales), but today I think I caught a pretty good wave to ride through the season.
Not only did I overhear a perfectly retold outcome and moral to the Polar Express from one of my third graders, but I also had the chance to finally notice the effects of a secret gift exchange that has been going on at work this past week. The two crafts above (along with a (kinda) perfect circle) made up 3 of the 5 presents I passed on to another. When I revealed my elfish ways this morning/afternoon, I knew I made her happy.
And I also got to stop worrying if the bracelet fit or not – so, thumbs up.
